Role of Grammarian in Toastmasters

A colleague of mine wore a fun T-shirt during a recent Casual Friday at our office. The T-shirt said “I am silently correcting your grammar.” Trust me, I have never been more conscious of things I uttered and I am pretty sure it made others in the office nervous too.

However, the T-shirt did say a harsh truth. Too often, people don’t correct our grammar on our face to be polite. However, they do register our mistakes in their mind.

Toastmasters gives us the opportunity to do so sans any apprehensions. I don’t have the T-shirt but as the Grammarian today, I will make a note of not just the good usage of English, but also the not so good usage and incorrect pronunciations.

I am also supposed to give you the word of the day. It’s “allusion”

It’s a noun that means “an indirect or passing reference”

An example of the word’s use is –

“TM Rahul made an allusion to me in his last speech”

I hope everyone uses this word to the maximum. I will be back with my report towards the end of the meeting. Thank You.
